Here we are at the news conference last week with our fellow wife-husband kidney donor duo. They are Oklahoma State grads too, hence the guns up! Ok, ok, they are a bit younger than us too! Anyway it was a record setting day for transplants at Baylor on Sept 1 so they had a few of the recipients back for a news conference last week, could you pick out Joe if you saw it on any of the channels? or the newspaper?
We want to let folks know that despite feeling and looking good, Joe's kidney values increased slightly and are not to the level the doctors would ideally like to see them SO he is scheduled for a needle biopsy of the kidney in the morning, Thursday, September 17. It will take several days to get the results and hopefully it will just require a tweaking of his anti-rejection drugs to get things back on track. Chelly received a great report from her surgeon this morning having healed nicely. Please keep the good positive thoughts and prayers coming!
